No KILL SWITCH ! Info Please
as I have limited knowledge regarding outboard engines, I think I have a problem.
I will be using an old Mercury Blueband 20 on my small Flatacraft rib, and am aware that it does not have any sign of an Engine Stop or Kill Switch present.
There is a type of electrical socket to the gear side of the front of the engine, but I am assuming that is a 12v take-off for nav lights etc. I may be wrong, and there is something missing here.
Is it possible to connect some type of universal engine stop switch, possibly with a lanyard, to this outboard, as the only way I can stop the engine is to remove the fuel line !
I have built a jockey console, so will need to run wiring back to the engine, would It be okay to route the wiring along the steering cable, or are there better ideas?
Can anyone recommend an engine stop switch ?
